March's Super Tuesday comes on a Monday in February this year

Early voting for Georgia's presidential primary begins tomorrow, and I'm thinking about taking advantage. It'll allow me to register my preference before the polls open for the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.

In 2008 and 2012 the candidates I wanted to vote for weren't even still on the ballot when Georgia voted. I had to settle for leftovers that didn't inspire me and were useful only to let me vote against the ELECTABLE!!! candidates we ended up having foisted on us solely so they could lose in November.

This time it's different. I'm going to get to vote for a candidate I actually preferred even before the post-Iowa dropouts left the stage. Why wait until March?

The best part? I'm pretty sure Jeb Bush will be out of the race by March 1. The alleged frontrunner until last summer. When Bush drops out, Trump will have my permission to follow. Then Ann Coulter can go back to pushing Chris Christie who will be angling for a veep slot by then.

These are not predictions, they're wishcasts. All the more awesome, though, if it happens that way.

  1. I said I'd do it, and I did it. Which is why I voted for who I did.

  2. Well, Christie's already gone. Maybe when Benito Mousse drops out Coulter can support John Kasich or Michael Bloomberg.

  3. Bush has dropped out after losing big in South Carolina. At this point it looks like it will boost Rubio. Hopefully Cruz has surprises in store for him and Trump on Super Tuesday.
